11 Reasons Why Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Would Be A Better President Than The Current Candidates

He's the hero we need but don't deserve.

11 Reasons Why Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Would Be A Better President Than The Current Candidates

After quite some time of silence from Dwayne Johnson in the news, a lot has happened. "The Rock" has let everyone know he will be joining YouTube and that he would like to run for president someday.

Wait, what!?

Back in March, Johnson revealed that he wouldn't rule out politics as a career. This has come back to light, and here's the best part: if he ran in this presidential election, he could win. Here's why I think Johnson would be a better president than any of the current candidates.

1. He's a "Stronger" Candidate

Okay, I really just wanted to make this pun. It's true though-- overall, he's a stronger person. He can last longer on a stage/in front of crowds, he knows how to work a crowd better, and he knows how to not piss people off... which both of the current candidate are, sadly, not that great it.

2. He's Charitable

Everyone knows that Dwayne Johnson is a charitable guy. He donated so much money ($1 million) to the University of Miami that they named a locker room after him. Johnson has also showed support for other charities, including but nor limited to the Make-A Wish Foundation, Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation, I Have a Dream Foundation, Make The Difference Network, Red Cross, and Until There's a Cure.

3. He is Well-Liked

Johnson already has a fans in over 130 countries around the world. Johnson would be easily accepted by not just his fan base, but by people around the world because of his fan base.

4. He is Trustworthy

I don't even know why, but I trust him with my life. I can't explain it, but he's a trusting person. Look at that face! That smile! I feel like he would never lie to me, and it's important for a President to be trusted by his nation.

5. There is Already a Movement

People already want The Rock for president. There's no hiding it, people have been petitioning and trying to get his attention for a while now-- we all want it. It's time to stop fighting and accept it: President Rock is coming.

6. He is Appealing for Every Party

I didn't know Johnson's party until I started researching for this article. He's a republican. As a democrat, I don't even care. At this point, he's still better than the candidates we have just because he's The Rock. Since Trump has "tossed his toupee in the ring," anyone is starting to look like a good republican candidate.

7. He is Respectful

I have personally never heard a story about Johnson disrespecting anyone. He respects military, law enforcement, his fans, his co-workers, athletes, basically everyone. It's really beautiful-- especially since each of the other candidates (Yes, I'm considering Johnson a candidate now) has shown disrespect to multiple people. Also, can you imagine a certain toupee covered orange crayon trying to speak with a leader from another country? I can, and it's kind of scary.

8. He's a Family Man

He's a faithful family man, to correct myself. Being faithful just feeds to the fact that he's trustworthy-- we all want a President who we can trust and who won't turn his back on those he loves.

9. He is Used to a Hectic Schedule

Being the President comes with a lot of duties. And by a lot, I actually mean way too many. Being able to handle a crazy schedule is just one of the pre-requisites to being the Leader of the Free World. As a former WWE fighter, an actor, and keeping himself in shape he can handle a busy schedule.

10. He is Hard Working

Come on, look at him. You don't get that body by saying, "Oh, if I go 1100% today I can go 70% tomorrow!" No. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson goes 110% every single second of every single day. He's a boss, and with his hard work and determination he will make America fabulous.

11. He's Currently Living the American Dream

Johnson grew up humble and built his way to the top. He worked hard, he was dedicated, and he got what he wanted. He was never given what he wanted, he earned it. As someone who has been on both teams, he can relate to everyone and he knows what America really needs.

So, can you smell what The Rock is cooking? I can, and it smells a lot like his title may be changing to Mr. President in the not-so-far future.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.

Going To College During COVID-19 Has Caused Some INTENSE Burnout, And It's Not Just Me

Graduation doesn't even feel like the light at the end of the tunnel anymore.


When my college announced that we would be having the fall 2020 semester on-campus, I was pretty excited. After six months of living at home with my parents with nothing to do, my study abroad trip in May canceled, and my 21st birthday plans down the drain, going back to campus meant that I would regain some of my individuality and see my friends again. But since we've returned, it has not been as fun as I had hoped my senior year of college would be.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).
